Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Small towns that close ranks against outsiders are nothing new, but a small town closing ranks against an "outsider" who moved away less than a year ago? That is new. So, why did Kyra die? Was it depression? an accident? something else? That's only one of the things that Corey wants to discover when she returns to Lost, but because she's now an outsider she discovers that nothing is the same, nothing is familiar in the town she once knew so well. There are undertones of Harvest Home and "Insomnia" here, leading to a feeling of claustrophobia and confusion that readers will share with Corey during her time in Lost.
